Greendog Running Club

We are excited to announce that Snowden will be hosting the Greendog Running Club this fall for Cross Country season for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. We will be training for 5-6 Cross Country meets (1 mile course) hosted by Memphis Youth Association (MYA) at Shelby Farms. Some of our kids ran on our team a couple of years ago, but we’re hoping to sustain a program going forward.

The goal of the Greendog Running Club is to get our kids active and teach them about running and teamwork.

We will host a summer practice on Saturday, June 24th from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. at the Club House in Overton Park (we ask that parents stick around for this entirety of this first practice and you can enjoy Overton Park with us). After school starts, we will pick up with practices probably on a Thursday/Saturday schedule.

• Cost: Cost is $40 per runner for the season. Running jerseys for meets will be an additional $20. Payment is not due until late August, and if you have concerns about the cost, there is a potential waiver.

• Meets: All meets are at Shelby Farms on Mondays and start at 5pm. The first meet is September 13, 2021.

• Kids will need an up to date physical for participation.

If your child is interested in running cross country, please contact Bryce Ashby at [email protected]
Good morning!
Does anyone have an idea when new Kindergartners receive their assigned class/teacher?
Thank you!
🥎 Could anyone share any info about the middle school softball team? In addition to info about practice schedule, how often there are games, etc. Other parents are also asking about what sports are offered at Snowden, at what age can kids play, are there male and female teams (eg: soccer, basketball...)? Thank you in advance!

LAST CHANCE TO WEIGH IN:

I know I've posted this previously but the deadline to comment on the proposed “Smoke Shop” that is set to go into 651 N. McLean next to Dino’s is this Friday, March 19, 2021 at 9am. Comments should be sent to [email protected]

We need as many comments in opposition of the shop as possible so please circulate to other Snowden families, neighbors, and stakeholders. Background information is below:

It was originally rumored to be a v**e shop, which would have required a Special Use Permit from the City Council, but after inquiry from the Division of Planning and Development, the store’s owner claims that v**e products would make up only 15% of its projected monthly sales. To be considered a “v**e shop” it must have 50% of its sales made up of v***r related products.
In addition to v**e products, it will be selling ci**rs and to***co products, bongs, drug paraphernalia, and other “novelty items.” Obviously, we are uncomfortable with such a business being located approximately 200 feet from Snowden’s property where in non-pandemic times more than 1300 PK-8 students attend daily.
VECA, on behalf of the neighborhood, has filed an appeal and the Snowden PTO has submitted the attached letter in support of the appeal. The City Council has already put in place a moratorium on such shops going forward, BUT this moratorium does not apply to 651 N. McLean as it is not retroactive so we need your help.

In the meantime, we would ask all of you to send an email to Luca Skinner ([email protected]) expressing your opposition to a smoke shop being located at 651 N. McLean. The appeal is set to be heard on March 24, 2021. All comments must be submitted by Friday, March 19, 2021 at 9am.

If you are willing to send a comment, please reference the address (651 N. McLean) in the subject line, state your connection to the issue (neighbor/child at Snowden), and express yours concerns such as the following: (1) business presents a direct health threat to the children at our school; (2) Division of Planning and Development required only a letter stating the percentage of sales for v***r products would be less than 50% instead of requiring substantive documentation such a business plan for verification; and (3) such a smoke shop is inappropriate in this location given its proximity to a school and the neighborhood.

We are asking that the Board of Adjustment take these actions listed in order of preference: (1) deny the business authorization to operate its business in this location; (2) vacate the Division of Planning and Development’s decision and require the business to reapply with proper documentation of a business plan to demonstrate that it will not be a v**e shop; or (3) at the very least require the business to submit substantive documentation before approval and submit monthly receipts after opening to verify its sales.

If you have questions, please reach out to me or Eddie Hankins ([email protected]).
Hello PTO! Is there still a uniform
Clothes closet for Snowden? I have several items to donate as well as being willing to help organize it...thanks to anyone who can put me in touch with the right people!
UPDATE regarding "smoke shop" at 651 N. McLean near Snowden:

The Memphis City Council passed a 9-month moratorium on the opening of “smoke shops” like the one proposed for 651 N. McLean, which is great news. The problem is that this moratorium does not act retroactively so we still need the community’s support in front of the Board of Adjustment on March 24th at 2pm.

Please remember to submit your written comments and encourage others to submit comments to [email protected] by Friday, March 19 at 8am. Please note that we had previously been told that comments could be submitted until the day prior but that has been changed. We’ve obtained a lot of support from community members like you, Rhodes College, and various churches in the area. That said, we can always use more.

Additionally, if anyone would like to provide verbal testimony, please contact Mr. Skinner and provide your name, phone number and reference BOA 2021-0013 by September 23rd.

You will be able to watch the hearing via the following link:

We need some assistance from our Snowden community regarding the proposed “Smoke Shop” that is set to go into 651 N. McLean next to Dino’s. The business has received a permit from the Division of Planning and Development and has already begun filling up its shelves with inventory.

It was originally rumored to be a v**e shop, which would have required a Special Use Permit from the City Council, but after inquiry from the Division of Planning and Development, the store’s owner claims that v**e products would make up only 15% of its projected monthly sales. To be considered a “v**e shop” it must have 50% of its sales made up of v***r related products.

In addition to v**e products, it will be selling ci**rs and to***co products, bongs, drug paraphernalia, and other “novelty items.” Obviously, we are uncomfortable with such a business being located approximately 200 feet from Snowden’s property where in non-pandemic times more than 1300 PK-8 students attend daily.

VECA, on behalf of the neighborhood, has filed an appeal and the Snowden PTO has submitted the attached letter in support of the appeal. Further, Dr. Jeff Warren has agreed to speak against the permitting of the business and is working on an effort to regulate to***co and smoke shops.

In the meantime, we would ask all of you to send an email to Luca Skinner ([email protected]) expressing your opposition to a smoke shop being located at 651 N. McLean. The appeal is set to be heard on March 24, 2020, so all comments must be submitted by March 23rd at the latest.

If you are willing to send a comment, please reference the address (651 N. McLean) in the subject line, state your connection to the issue (neighbor/child at Snowden), and express yours concerns such as the following: (1) business presents a direct health threat to the children at our school; (2) Division of Planning and Development required only a letter stating the percentage of sales for v***r products would be less than 50% instead of requiring substantive documentation such a business plan for verification; and (3) such a smoke shop is inappropriate in this location given its proximity to a school and the neighborhood.

If you have questions, please reach out to me or Eddie Hankins ([email protected]).
Does anyone remember who received the Parent Volunteer of the Year award in 2017? It would have been given out at the 8th grade ceremony.
How do we get verification of what option we selected? PowerSchool only tells me I made my choice known, but does not reiterate what choice I selected. This makes me 😬.
Does anyone have a copy of the summer reading lists and school supply lists? Usually they are posted but I can't find them. Thanks so much!
Does anyone know who recently planted in the raised beds at Snowden? Big Green needs to know so that they can collaborate.
